Kids get to vote

School-age kids are encouraged to accompany their parents to the Woodford County polls on Nov. 4 to participate in Kids Voting USA. A special voting booth will be set up in each polling place for kids in kindergarten through 12th grade, and an attendant will assist the youngsters. The kids' voting results will be tallied and displayed alongside official election results in the Woodford Sun.

When registering, students will be asked to list their school, their grade and their teacher's name. The class at each school with the most registered voters will receive coupons for McDonald's happy meals at a ceremony.
